I live and work in the Derry/Donegal area in private practice and in teaching. My teaching involves training students who wish to work as therapeutic counsellors, I find this and my private practice very rewarding. I love working with people and in my spare time I am a genealogist, I have spent the past 9 years researching my family tree (and still at it). I am also interested in and training in Graphology, which is the analysis of handwriting, used by many law enforcement and legal professionals and which also has its place in counselling.
